Keep going hard, just watch your ph
You could strain out half your bed and replace if your worried about flavor, although im currently trying to get a 8 gen NGW to turn into a neutral wash - no backset or new grains for 3 gens, it isnt working out too well so far, still plenty of flavour left :D
SBB has uj that is at 70+ gens now

I think the sour mash bourbon flavour only starts around gen 6. It can be funky but ages well. I have had 8 gen sugarhead whiskey with more "bourbon" flavour then sweet mash all grain corn whiskey.. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Yea sorry shoulda looked at thread tittle. But should be same putting the backset in will compound flavour and give it a more "authentic" flavour..

Sorry guys, I may have led the off topic just thought the principle would be the same regardless of the type of wash. Did not know whether to stop the CFW run to start a MacWhisky. From advice in previous posts will continue with the CFW generations and grab another fermenter and start a MacWhisky run. Looking forward to trying oak toasted, charred, soak in sherry etc
Not sure if I can keep up with trying all the variations to taste :)
